We are lucky enough to have this wonderful cabin to stay in, filled with many memory-laden things that belonged to my grandparents who — luckily for all of us Winkopps, Morgans, Stevensons and Jacksons — discovered this tiny village and made their home there. The picture above is the view from the cabin window. At least it is the view when I was last there in March. Hopefully the snow has melted by now. In Vermont, you never know.
The cabin is full of comforting things like the pine kitchen table, complete with some goodies that the last relative left behind because they know you were coming next.
And all around, little sunny antiques and artifacts that have been collected over the years.
But in general, I am going to kick back and relax, and as I always do, send up a grateful prayer to my grandparents for giving us this gift of Vermont, which is now on its fourth generation. And since I would never leave you without a recipe, here’s one from the Barrows House in Dorset. If you are ever in the area, it’s a great place to have a delicious Vermont dinner. If you go this week, maybe I will see you there!
